How are we living as God’s Image?

I used be able to dismiss God’s existence pretty easily. I mean, come on, look at my life, look at what has been done to me. But I can’t dismiss God so easily anymore because I believe in you… and you believe in God.
~ From a conversation between a homeless youth and a Sister of Charity

And this is precisely the way things should work if Christians are living as God’s true Christ-shaped new humanity. This is the way in which people should respond to us if we are living as the imago Dei. Through the Spirit we become as the Son and thereby manifest the Father.

Naturally this leads me to ask myself this question: how am I living in a way that causes others to reconsider the question of the existence of the Christian God?

How about you, dear reader, how are you living in a way that causes others to reconsider the question of the existence of the Christian God?
